. chief washington correspondent ed henry live in the white house briefing room with the administration latest effort to reach a deal. with a last minute pitch from the president. the president seems to be saying go home for the holidays, take a deep breath. ref lax. come back. get it done. >> good evening, john. high drama here. when the president is leaving for hawaii in 90 minutes from now. first, though, he met at the white house with senator reid and he called the speaker boehner and came out on the podium behind me. he laid out three-point plan that he thinks can pass if ten days. extend tax cut for 98% of the public. extend unemployment benefit for 2 million people. come back to deal with spending cut and deficit reduction. he said that was achievable by january 1 to avoid the cliff. after last night, unclear whether anything can pass. >> just as the economy is really starting to recover, and we're starting to see optimistic signs. we have seen, actually, some up-side statistics from a range of areas clouding housing, now is not the time for more self-inflicted wounds. certainly
the rest of the world. so 90% of the what happens in growth has nothing to do with washington. it's coming from the private sector itself and we're overcoming a lot of difficulties. on the government side, i think the president's plan is let's grow from the middle out. let invest in the workforce. let's invest in rebuilding the infrastructure of the country. let's try time prove the competitiveness of u.s. industry and we have got to shift to more export and investment-led growth and away from residential investment and consumer spending. i think that's the overview of what he was saying in the campaign. and i think you are right, laura, that the only thick that we were arguing about was high income people's tax rates and should they go back to what they were in the 90's. that would be totally inadequate as a complete plan. i think in 2013, i wish we could do it before, but i think it's going to be 2013, i think we're going to sit down and they probably will hammer out something like a grand bargain. that would be a pretty big accomplishment. that will involve substantial -- will have to i

? tell that to all the americans who face steep tax increases if the politicians in washington can't hammer out a budget deal. we have a report. >> bill: i think think fired the janitor and valet car parker at the state department. >> we both have respect for secretary clinton. you are roman catholic as am i. we are now calling this the immaculate condition cushion. secretary of state hillary clinton still m.i.a. after taking a fall two weeks ago. now there is all kinds of speculation about her health, about whether she will ever testify about libya and what will happen to a possible presidential run in 2016. the factor investigates. >> america can be a lawful society and a welcoming society at the same time. >> former president george w. bush is back arguing for a new way forward for republicans. is the g.o.p. finally ready tomorrow brace their former leader? caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone, and the factor begins right now. >> laura: hi everyone i i'm laura ingraham in for bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. back-to-work. that's the subject of this even
things done in washington than playing politics. i think to recognize there's been real progress made, right the border is safer today, the immigration system is better, the two parties worked together to do that over the last few years. there are still some meaningful things that need to get done. the d.r.e.a.m. act, we have to fix the low-end and high-end visa system. the mexicans are going to do a whole boar border system. i think there will be a lot of room to work together next year to get something meaningful done. if the republicans are earnest and play it straight i think they'll get a lot of credit for working with the democrats to fix the broken immigration system and making it better. jon: getting something meaningful done, it seems like a longtime since that's happened in washington. we'll look forward to it. simon rosenberg. kate obenshane thank you much. jenna: the nato alliance warning the assad regime in syria against using chemical weapons against his own people. this is an attempt to for once and for all crush the 21-month rebellion there. nato is considering a turki
in particular caused washington to give unusual deference to his judgment. while the report concludes that there were systemic failures at senior levels of the state department, significantly it does not make any formal recommendations for discipline airy action, bill. bill: what else should we know that's in there, catherine? >> reporter: well the missing piece really, and this is the critical policy piece, is why it was that the obama administration specifically, the secretary of state, advocated for this light footprint on the ground in benghazi when the intelligence seemed to suggest otherwise? secretary clinton will not be testifying this week citing doctors orders she remain at home as she recovers from this concussion. instead we'll hear from two of her deputies. >> when you hear the testimony of deputy secretary burns and deputy secretary nines remind they are standing in for her, so the testimony they give on thursday will very much reflect her view and how we should two forward from this report and how we should learn its lesson. >> reporter: two main takeaways here that sec
will be under nato control. washington sets up the insurance exchangings under obama care. so far 23 states opted out meaning that the federal government will have to run it for them. 19 will have state run exchanges and six plan on partnering with the fids and virginia and florida are the only two states that have not made a decision. we are 18 days from going over the fiscal cliff and president and john boehner hard at work to avirt a disaster. they met at the white house for 50 minutes. neither side would go in details, but the mighting came hours after speaker boehner critized the president for an unwillingness to compromise. >> the president promised the american people a balanced approach, his proposals are anything but. he wants far more in tax hikes than spending cuts. boehner said talks were doing great. do you feel the need for speed ? that is forevermore wwe wrestler. u.s. navy let him take a ride in the fighter jet for the annual tribute for the troops. how fast did he g. he went 900 miles per hour. don't worry. they made him go through training. i wonder if he had the barf bad.
optimism for a deal seems to be fading. steve is live in washington with more. >> reporter: one month away from that so-called fiscal cliff. there appears to be very little movement toward any kind of deal. president obama is using the bully-pulpit to appeal to the american people to push for immediate action to push the tax cuts for everybody except for those earning more than $250,000 a year. in his saturday address, he stressed the urgency of the situation. >> if congress does nothing, every family will see their income taxes automatically go up at the beginning of next year. a typical middle-class family of four will see income taxes rise by $2200. we can't let that happen. a families can't afford it and neither can our economy. >> reporter: republicans led by house speaker john boehner says he should quit campaigning and take care of the business at hand. republicans say they are willing to consider raising more revenue but they want to see spending cuts to go along with it. >> we need to hear they are willing to make spending cuts now, not promises of spending cuts sometime if the fu
>> steve: you have a schism in the republican party. they went to washington. look they are not going to raise on anybody and we'll cut thengs . you have the other faction . republican party saying look, we didn't do so well in the last election . we have to compromise with the president to get something done . that's why john boehner said i don't have a votes mr. #2: if you give me plan b i am vetoing in. republicans were saying we are giving you something and go home. they decided plan b will not pass . they are not coming back until after christmas. mr. boehner said i tried. you cut a trial. newt kning rich sat down with bill clenton and 30 days of one and one negotiation . he said it is time to go back to that. >> my advice to them have every single committee starting january 3rd hold hearings on every lempt waste in the federal government . let the country see all of the different ways to waste money to peck up on can congressman cantor. speaking is the problem and drive issue after issue . we would like to fix the tax rates, and any time the president and democrats want to talk
. leadership void in washington . look who is stepping in to help settle the debate. former governor jeb bush. could it work. >> steve: no police in sight. a mob of protestors tore down a tent with children and elderly people and people with wheelchairs inside. >> two men came in with ski masks and had box cutters. >> steve: that is what happened in michigan a couple of days ago. >> brian: we'll not see commercialism like this anymore? ♪ >> brian: yeah, outlawed because they are just too loud. >> steve: really? >> brian: "fox and friends" starts -- ♪ >> this is the stage manager, ho, ho, ho. happy holidays. you are watching. "fox and friends". >> steve: very nice. >> brian: and joe did not know the news that we found out early this morning. that bralanedwars acquired by the new york jets had a ham string. >> steve: joel is america's biggest jet's fan. >> gretchen: that is insider information. >> brian: he had a bounce in the step. >> gretchen: luckily i know who that is. should we kick off the show with headlines. we now know the identity of the shooter in the mall . he had no history of
pemmaraju in for jenna lee today. jon: good to have you here. optimism is always a good thing in washington. that is in short supply. ringing in 2013 at midnight tonight could mean ringing in more than half a trillion dollars in tax hikes and a hundred billion dollars worth of spending cuts from defense and other key domestic programs, that is if no deal is reached in time to avert it. both the house and senate with rare new year's eve sessions today as they try to hammer out some sort of an agreement. >> we do have to work together, because without bi-partisanship nothing is going anywhere. what we can do is avoid a fiscal calamity by not having the sequestration take place on january 1. jon: the white house also burning the midnight oil last night with the president saying earlier that he ways modestly optimistic the two side could strike a deal. but the key sticking points remain the same, taxing the wealthy and cutting the budget to pay for democratic spending proceed proceeds always. >> it feels an awful lot like groundhog day. this is the fourth or fifth time i've stood at this podium
of "fox news sunday". maybe the worst-kept secret in washington. everybody expected it was going to be john kerry. what does he bring to this post, chris? >> well he certainly brings experience. he has been a member of the senate a long time. he is chairman as wendell said of the senate foreign relations committee. he seems to have a good working relationship between president obama and his national security team. in fact obama has used him several times as a personal envoy to deal particularly with problems in pakistan and afghanistan. it got to a point where hamid karzai, the president of afghanistan preferred to deal with john kerry, the personal envoy the president, rather than the u.s. ambassador there. his latest role had been that he played mitt romney in preparations for the presidential debates. some people said that the president didn't like the fact that he, kerry, was a little long-winded during those debate preps. obviously after the first one, president did pretty well. kerry obviously did pretty well playing romney. he will get the job which he clearly hungered for
at the white house aimed at the syrian regime. how far is is washington willing to go. plus, word of a new attack in the syrian capital that reportedly wiped out a classroom full of kids. the nfl murder-suicide. the mother of belcher talking about what her son did after he killed his girlfriend and what the kansas city chiefs say they knew about his problems before he shot himself in the head. manhunt in times square for the guy accused of pushing a passenger in front of an oncoming train as witnesses stood in shock. >> you know, you almost heard like a thud. >> tonight, the horror that has shaken new york city. >> but first from fox this tuesday night, the world has just cranked up the pressure on syria. one day after the white house warned syria against using its chemical weapons, nato allies issued a similar message today saying that such action would not only be completely unacceptable but a clear breach of international law. hours ago white house press secretary jay carney says he thinks syria's leaders have gotten the messages. >> it's hard for me to imagine that they are not fully a
. >> what's been holding us back is the dysfunction here in washington and if, you know, people start to see that on january 1st this problem still hasn't been solved, that we haven't seen the deficit reduction we could have had, the republicans been willing to take the deal i gave them, if they say, that people's taxes have gone up, which means consumer spending is going to be depressed, obviously that will adverse reaction in the markets. heather: there is lot at stake for all americans. three big issues on the financial front this morning as a matter of fact,. stu varney, host of "varney & company" on the fox business network joins us now. stu, no deal on capitol hill, not really doing their job but we're hearing they get a pay raise. >> that incredible to some people, but nonetheless before this past weekend, president obama quietly signed a executive order that gives a small pay raise to two million federal workers and a small pay raise to all 535 members of congress. they will get an extra $900 each in the forthcoming year starting march 27th. but they get a pay raise. so the people wh
. so far no arrests have been made. >>> 7:14. happening right now in washington, d.c., lawmakers say negotiations are looking better to avoid going over the fiscal cliff at 9:00 p.m. our time. as kyla cam billion reports from our washington, d.c. newsroom, there's still a gap on raising taxes. >> reporter: republicans and democrats both say these negotiations are moving forward. the house is back at work this hour and we expect to hear from the senate when they start their day in about 45 minutes everyone the big et problem that needs to be -- biggest problem that needs to be solved is deciding who should pay more in taxes. democrats offered to raise taxes on households making $450,000. republicans were still hoping for the $550,000. but republicans dropped their demand to cut social security benefits. at that point, joe biden and mitch mcconnell took over negotiations. the two worked together in the senate for 23 years and have a strong history of finding compromise. >> i think there's some good news. the conversations continued late into the night last night. i think now there is a
cliff counter offer to president obama. eamon javers joins us now from washington with all the details. good evening. >> reporter: good evening. leapt me walk you through the specifics or at least what specifics we have so far from this boehner counter offer and you can see where it falls short from the white house's perspective right in the top line take a look at the details here. boehner and the other house republicans are asking for $800 billion in new tax reform revenue. that's short of the $1.6 trillion that the president would like to see there. also health savings of $600 billion. mandatory savings of $300 billion. revisions of cpa of 200 billion. other discretionary saving 300 billion. they say net savings is $2.2 trillion all told. the white house says this plan is not balanced, and interestingly there's a little side skirmish here between the speaker of the house john boehner and erskine bowls. boehner said this was based on a report that bowles laid out. bawls said no. he said the approach laid out does not represent the simpson-bowles plan or the bowles plan. in fact what
the chances that he could take desperate, drastic action. the washington editor at large for "the atlantic" and is with the new american foundation. david, let me start with you. the question on this red line, have the syrians already crossed it if they're preparing the weapons to deliver the chemical waem weapons? is that the crossing of the line? >> it would seem to be the crossing of the line if you took what the president said in august when he gave an impromptu news conference and i think it was your question that prompted him to say at that time that if they move the weapons or if they used them, it would, i think his word was changed my calculus. >> and it was moved. exactly right. they've moved him. >> they have certainly -- it's not clear they've moved them outside the storage site although that may have happened earlier in the fall, but the big concern is that they may be preparing them for use in weapons, which is to say some of these include sarin, you have two agents you have to mix together in order to make the weapon. there are some reports that suggest that may be happening
actually had a visual assist on this. "the washington post" said that obama and his allies spent far less than mitt romney, but got far more in key markets, targeting key democratic groups such as the young working voters in spring states. i think what they did, knowing why they were going, something we never saw before. the worst move of the 2012 campaign? >> i got two things on this. one is, i think my answer is choosing paul ryan to be the vice presidential nominee. just because a, it never gave him the list that anything thought it would be. he effectively neutered mitt romney, whether it was the stuff with todd aken, or the ryan budget, nowhere to run away from it. >> alex and i were on the same wavelength, picking paul ryan, not only for those reasons, but mitt romney went on to lose wisconsin badly. there were questions after paul ryan's debate performance against joe biden of whether he was really ready to step on the stage and be the number two. and i think a lot of people who thought about going with mitt romney, not only were they uncomfortable with how far to the right he was,
short his hawaii vacation to return to washington and coming up, signs that president obama maybe reaching out to another republican leader after his negotiations with house speaker john boehner did not result in a deal. >> well, traffic don't in downtown san francisco could grind to a halt. that's because today is the last scheduled critical mass event for the year. for those new to the area, on the last friday of every month, dozens of cyclists ride alightning the waterfront and down market street and drivers are always advised to expect delays. >> peeking of, we haven't really seen any this morning. let's go to tara and see if that changed. >> no, the same story. maybe a lot of folks headed up to the tahoe area. maybe they already left as a matter of fact because the skiing is going to be pretty good up there. right now i want to show you my maps so you can see exactly what i'm talking about up here. the roadways are completely clear and in livermore the same story. overall a very nice commute this morning. 237, those taillights there on the far right hand side of your screen w
in the united states to our maximum benefit? at a time when washington is talking about our fiscal crisis i'd say that the relationship of our oil needs to this crisis itself are close. it might not solve our fiscal crisis but clearly it's a necessary ingredient. every recession in the history of the united states in moden times has been preceded by or happening concurrent with an oil price spike. if we don't have continued growth we can cut all we want and raise revenue all we want, but we'll never find a way to solve our fiscal troubles. and i think this report really looks at how do we leverage this great abundance, this great blessing in the united states, both of our resources and of our innovative skills to help the country through these times and put us in a good footing for the next 50, 100 years. and secondly, i think this report really is the beginning of a process of creating an effective deep and stable bipartisan consensus on energy policy, in a town where everything is about the zero sum game. we are trying to escape that zero sum game. and we see the oil security as a unifyin

is out campaigning for this again because he thinks there is a dead lock here in washington and he wants to break it with pressure points from the american people pushing republics because republics are now in a defensive posture where if they don't act in the next few weeks and we do fall off that so-called fiscal cliff, taxes will go up on everyone. and the fact is republics against tax increases so the president basically put the pressure on. take a listen. >> a clear majority of americans, democrats, republicans, independents, they agreed with a balanced approach. deficit reduction and making sure that middle class taxes don't go up. folks agreed to that. now, the good news is we are starting to see a few republics coming around to it too. >> now, house democratic leader nancy pelosi put an even finer point on it today saying flatly, elections have consequences suggesting democrats are not going to give in on their push for higher taxes on the rich. shep. >> shepard: by any measure, ed, the president came in strong, even folks on the left are saying it and john boehner seems very unh
